It's 2.5-mile banked track was innovative when it was built in 1959, and is host to such classics as the Daytona 500, Daytona Firecracker 250 and the Rolex 24. In addition, the track can be reconfigured into different lengths for other motor sports, such as sports cars, motorcycles and go-karts. The 29-acre Lake Lloyd in the infield can also be used for powerboat racing. When Bill France, Sr. founded the National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing (NASCAR) in Daytona in 1948, he knew that he wanted a home track.

The complex also includes a popular Visitor's Center as well as the Fanatics Pit Shop to provide fans with something to remember their visits by.
